  • BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A record number of people boarded airplanes in North Dakota in February.
    The state Aeronautics Commission says 84,853 people boarded planes at the state's eight commercial and regional airports, a 25 percent increase over the year and the most of any month on record.
    Airports in western North Dakota's booming oil patch once again saw huge increases over 2011. Boardings in Williston were up 62 percent, and in Dickinson they doubled.
    Aeronautics Commission Director Larry Taborsky says more records can be expected as the summer travel season arrives.
